Gum on a Wool Rug

I came home to find a big wad of white gum stuck to my new dark, wool rug. Any ideas on how to remove it safely?

Try WD-40, it's oil based and works wonders on gum. It washes out well also, just use soap and water. I usually spray some on the area and then spray some on a washrag, working the gum towards the tops of the carpet fibers to remove.
